Longer lasting Bronze Goddess?

I'm going on holiday in a couple of days. I picked up a bottle of Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess earlier this year and I love the smell for hot holidays - it smells like coconut and suntan lotion. Absolutely lovely. But it is an eau fraische so the scent fades really quickly and they don't do an eau de parfum or toilette.

Any recommendations for something that smells like it but lasts better?

I just keep re-spraying it through the day tbh! Is a massive bottle and I've only used up less than a quarter of it over the summer this year. It is the smell of holidays envy grin

Oh I love this I keep a bottle for through the winter to remind me of hols! I just skoosh it on my clothes/hair and it seems to last a lot longer.

Thanks guys. I do keep spraying it but I love the smell so much I want something stronger.

Any ideas?

I love it too but it fades super fast! Hence, the fact that I have a smidge left out of the bottle I bought August
Can u get a body oil in the same range? Maybe im dreaming.
I was thinking (probably wrongly) that I could use the Nuxe body oil first then the fragrance would cling to it!

The Caudalie and Nuxe scents have a similar sun lotion vibe but last much longer.

Terracotta by Guerlain is pretty similar. It was a limited edition, though, so not completely sure its still available.

Can you get a body lotion? Just layer it up. Try Hypnotic Poison although it's almondy as well as coconutty. EL Sensuous Nude is very like suntan lotion.

LUSH Yuzu shower gel smells like Bronze Goddess.
this place has pure coconut perfume and if you mix it with their vanilla then I think it's quite similar. Stays on really well.

These are all excellent recommendations, thanks all. I will try them.

I have a couple already - agree that Hypnotic Poison is very almond. I also have Nuxe but I don't get the suntan note from it.

I hate lugging my massive bottle of Bronze Goddess around with me all day so I have a bottle of Library of Fragrance Pina Colada that I keep in my bag for top ups. It's not exactly the same but has a similar summer holiday pineapple and coconut vibe going on - in that it smells EXACTLY like a pina colada, if that's your sort of thing. ;)

Spray your hair and your clothes and remember that you may not be able to smell it after a while but others probably will. Your nose gets accustomed. You can also layer it with other products from the same scent i.e the body oil. Fragrance also lasts longer on moisturised skin

Avon does a cheap and cheerful one called Tahitian Holiday that is very very similar indeedy and is only a fiver for 50ml.

Hope all this helps.
